Life Is Sweet





It's already February, however, this is my first blog post of the year, and, it's an awesome one!  If you've missed my posts, it's because I've had a wrist surgery that has had me sidelined.  I'm happy to report I'm on the mend and getting my cast off in three days!  I've missed you all!

For today's post, Stampendous® is participating in the House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  Be sure to leave a comment, because, through Stampendous®, I'm giving away a stamp picked from the comments from today's post.  How would you like to have your very own Stampendous® House-Mouse Designs® Cotton Ball Rubber Stamp, or, perhaps you would like to have Popcorn Birthday?  I'll let you choose the Stampendous® House-Mouse Designs® stamp of your choice from the January 2019 catalog.  It doesn't get much better than that!




Here's what I used to create this card: 

Stampendous products -


MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper
MEM01 Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
STF082 VersaFine™ Onyx Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
SSH38 Small Rectangle Handle

Other products -

Copic® Markers - E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E51, E53, R20, C0
May Arts Ribbon®
Patterned Paper by Recollections®
Pink Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®

Here's what I did to create this card:
  1. Stamp image on white paper with black ink
  2. Color image, stamp sentiment beneath colored image and trim as shown
  3. Create an A2 card base from pink cardstock
  4. Create a mat approximately 1/4” larger than the image from pink cardstock and adhere the two
  5. Trim patterned papers as shown
  6. Trim a piece of ribbon to fit across the front of the card
  7. Adhere all the layers as shown

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Don't forget to comment to be eligible to win.  I'll do a random drawing from the comments I receive.  See you again real soon!

Hugs, 
Lea
